The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, 810 and 820 processors are based on 64-bit architecture, but Microsoft still install the 32-bit version of its Windows 10 Mobile on current models of the series Lumia, and partner companies. However, this may change in the near future after giant confirmed plans to release a 64-bit Windows 10 Mobile.
The news comes from a post on the website of Microsoft, dedicated to the celebration of the career of veteran Dave Cutler, a longtime senior company official who worked precisely in the development of 64-bit AMD64 architecture in partnership with the eponymous chip-maker.
The giants on whose shoulders the industry stands. Dave Cutler is a wave maker, with a broad set of shoulders.
“At the time, some questioned why Microsoft developed a 64-bit system; today most computers are 64-bit systems and even our phones will soon have a 64-bit operating system.” The company said.
64-bit support in the operating system allows the devices to use more than 4GB RAM memory and provides better energy consumption with better parallel processing of information.
Rumors claim that the 64-bit version of Windows 10 Mobile can appear as part of Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update, and now it seems almost certain that the next generation Lumia-Surface Phone will use exactly 64-bit operating system.
